UCI Limits Some Transgender Athletes from Competing in International Races
Correct. Proper categorization is based on biology.

Good start, but correct categorization for men living as women needs to apply to all men, including those who attempt a transition before puberty. Biological differences between the sexes already exists before puberty, as can be seen in reflexes, reaction times, grip strength, humerus to radius+ulna ratios, femur to tibia+fibia ratios, 3D spatial processing in the brain, hand size, and more. Additionally, puberty suppressing drugs like Lupron do not suppress, delay, or prevent puberty so much as they alter puberty and biological development.

2 Unique Mountain Bikes from the Enve Builder Roundup
@ripcraft: I've been prototyping titanium bikes for this reason too, evaluating front-center and rear-center flex. My next step is I think I'll buy some DIY carbon kits and add carbon layers to the chainstays, and then the downtube around the BB to see how that affects things, like specialized did https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p5pb17427775/p5pb17427775.jpg

Trek Releases Fuel EXe Alloy
@swansong: PS looking at those builds a little closer, the Orbea is clearly the winner. Yes, I said this category is kinda pointless, but the Orbea does technically have a full size motor, and its 540wh battery is more than halfway to a full sized 600+wh battery. In my experience, the jump in performance from "Rhythm" to "Performance" is huge as well.

@swansong: Thats a good side by side. Plop an angleset in the Orbea Rise and its a clear winner. I still stand by my point. For sub 30 pound trail bikes, a single pound makes a big difference. For mid-30 pound enduro bikes, it takes 2-3 pounds before weight starts to matter. By the time you're in 2007 DH bike weights in the mid 40s, it takes 5+ pounds for it to make a difference. In this same price bracket, the aluminum Specialized Turbo Levo is like 6 pounds heavier but is full powered and full range. I guess what I'm trying to say, since its not economically feasible to sell a 40 pound lightweight ebike for under $8k, its kinda a pointless category. Its like your one friend who wants to get into mountain biking, won't settle for a hard tail, but has a $600 budget. Yes, you can find bikes to fit that price, but ultimately its not worth it.

@ripcraft: Ha, 10 pounds is pretty good! Thats how much a Marino frame weighs in the larger sizes. It would be interesting to see if a 10 pound steel frame rides any worse than a light carbon frame, but with weight added super low around the bb (I get thats what they did in the video in the article I linked above, but I want to experience that myself)

Missing the most important figure for these light ebikes: weight. The Orbea Wild ebike with a 625wh battery and the most powerful motor out there is 46 pounds. If these can't be sub 40 I don't see the point.

First Ride: SRAM's New GX Transmission
@onawalk: whatever floats your boat, man. I'd rather have $600 better suspension- get an EXT thats custom tuned to your bike and body weight. My $150 Advent X is everything I need for shifting.
